We are committed to providing quality eye care to you and your family
Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease in both adults and children. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Part of your exam includes the following procedures: Slit Lamp Examinations, Dilated Eye Exams, Refraction for Glasses and Contact Lenses and Glaucoma Pressure Testing.
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. We offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient's needs including daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses and gas permeable contact lenses.
Refractive eye errors are extremely common. They occur when light that passes through the eye isn’t refracted directly onto the retina, which is the light-sensitive patch of cells at the back. This causes the signal that is sent by the retina to the brain via the optic nerve to appear garbled, and this causes our vision to appear blurred.
For those patients needing glasses or contact lenses, we offer a complete optical department. Since your prescription can be filled at the same place it was written, you will not only save time and travel, you will also have the security of knowing the doctor who wrote the prescription is available to answer questions. Our office is staffed with experienced opticians who specialize in high fashion eyewear and carry an assortment of designer frames.
Glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in the United States, is an eye disease that can lead to a permanent loss of vision. Glaucoma generally provides no warning signs or symptoms of disease, making testing an important part of a full vision exam.
Macular degeneration is a chronic eye disease that can severely impact vision. The most common type is called dry macular degeneration. The less common wet form is more severe and can be very disabling. Today, through early detection and treatment, eye care professionals are better able to manage this disease.
In the United States, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people under the age of 65. While it can cause cataracts and glaucoma, diabetes can cause the devastating eye disease known as Diabetic Retinopathy. Diabetic Retinopathy is a complication of diabetes involving abnormal blood vessels which nourish the retina of the eye. As part of our diabetic screening process, we will perform a comprehensive eye exam that includes a visual acuity test, pupil dilation, and careful examination of your retina.
While dry eye isn’t a serious condition, it can have a major impact on your quality of life. You may find your eyes get tired faster or you have difficulty reading. Not to mention the discomfort of a burning sensation or blurry vision.
